I had the opportunity to have a short play with one about 2 weeks ago.

Initial impressions are that sharp and correctly set, it would quickly hollow out a chair seat ready for finishing with a travisher or convex block plane.

In use it's a bit like a one handed convex shave with a short radius round mouth. Balancing the tool so that the cutting edge cuts rather than skates across the surface should take less than 5 mins practice before you were confident.
